"Brian Boitano has traveled all over the world for skating competitions, and he is fascinated with other cultures and their cuisine. He now finds the same deep fulfillment in cooking and entertaining that he once found in skating. His adventures abroad influence his own style of cooking, as does his Italian heritage, where great food has always been a key part of any gathering. Some of Boitano's favorite food memories revolve around family get-togethers, and his cookbook includes personal vignettes and dishes that are inspired by memorable family recipes. The recipes in What Would Brian Boitano Make? emphasize taste, convenience, and nutrition. Boitano pairs intriguing flavors and textures, playing with the balance of opposites to add complexity to his recipes. While gourmet in taste, the ingredients are easily accessible to any home cook. Mouthwatering recipes include: Paella Sliders, Crab-and-Avocado Crostini, Blood Orange Mojito, Butternut Squash Soup with Goat Cheese Toasts, Heirloom Tomato Cantaloupe and Feta Salad, Summer Squash Risotto with Grilled Lemon Basil Chicken, Pork Tenderloin with Warm Plum Salsa, Salmon with Pea and Basil Pesto, and Coconut Flan"-- Provided by publisher.
"What do cooking and figure skating have in common? They are both creative, take lots of practice, and have so many layers, as self-taught cook Brian Boitano has learned. He began exploring different foods and teaching himself to cook during his Olympic career when he toured the globe for competitions, trying new foods. Now he takes every opportunity possible to sample new foods, try out new combinations in the kitchen, and test them on friends and family. And that self-taught cooking has since led to his popular show on the Cooking Channel and this companion cookbook. Every recipe can be made by cooks of any skill level, so "get your cook on" with Brian's fabulous culinary creations and impress your guests!"-- Provided by publisher.
